Win-Win Week gets better each year.

This year's efforts across the state raised a record $130,000, Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Associated assistant director Amy Cassell said.

This year's results bring the overall total of the program to $500,000.

“I'm unaware of any other state whose students have collectively done so much for so many,” Cassell said.

A winning school from each class that raised the most money will receive a state championship trophy during the football state title games on Thursday, Dec. 5.

Win-Win Week is an annual collaborative effort of the OSSAA and the Stephenson Cancer Center. It is used to showcase cancer awareness and prevention among high school students, who use their athletic events for the cause.

DOUGLASS' COMEBACK KIDS

The Douglass Trojans' 11-1 record hasn't come without some late-game work, particularly in the playoffs.

Ranked No. 3 in Class 4A, the Trojans have trailed in the second half of both playoff wins. They were playing from behind for most of the first three quarters against Elgin in the opening round, before taking the lead for good in the final minute of the third quarter, then exploding in the fourth for a 63-28 win.

In last Friday's quarterfinals, Douglass trailed Oologah by 10 with 8:15 to go, before the rally kicked in. Trojan quarterback Patrick McKaufman scored the game-winning TD with 38 seconds left.
